The Smartwool Difference:
The Smartwool story started on a rugged Colorado ski slope with the belief that toes didn’t have to be cold.
One simple pair of Merino socks challenged the conventional wisdom and forever changed the way outdoor enthusiasts looked at their feet. It’s not just about the Merino, though. It’s what we do with it that makes Smartwool different. For over 20 years, we’ve been pushing the boundaries of Merino to create smarter, more capable products from head to toe.
Outfit Your Adventure:
Whether you’re running, hiking or riding, gear up to stay comfortable all day long. Merino wool is one of nature’s most advanced fibers, making it an ideal choice for high-performance clothing. The natural ability of wool clothing to breathe, wick moisture and resist odors make it a perfect choice for everything from pitching your tent after a long day on the PCT or shopping for fruit in a bustling Peruvian market. When you’re comfortable, everything else seems so much better.
PhD: Built for Performance in the Highest Degree
We know your adventures call for the perfect fit, so our PhD Outdoor line offers a variety of height and cushion options for any all-terrain action.
Frustratingly, in the last 2 years, every pair of SmartWool women's socks that I have ordered in my usual SmartWool size (women's small) have been way too small.
I've worn Smartwool socks for years and really like their quality and wearability. I'm disappointed in the quality of these PhD socks though. They started pilling at the heel after only wearing them 5 or 6 times. And that is with washing them at the delicate setting and air drying them. My - way older - light Smartwool socks show hardly any pilling at all after 3 years (see picture: new PhD socks in purple, old light outdoor socks in beige). For the price and the brand, I expect much better from Smartwool. I won't be buying the PhD socks again.
These are super comfortable and keep you virtually blister free even on long runs!!. I like they are a big hire and don't slip down. No shoe rubbing on skin! People think wool!!! eeeek. But they keep your feet cool and really the best running socks I have owned. I keep buying more!
Its the color! lol. I try to only buy smart wool. from light weight to heavy weight depending of if I'm wearing them for hiking, working in construction or just to run out shopping. This pair, I picked for the color. some of my smart wool socks are over five years and they are still going strong. This pair is well made and fits perfectly for my feet. I wear an 8.5 to a size 9 women shoes. I order a medium size socks. I plan to order a few more. my lighter weight smart wool socks, I use for walks and jogging.
Love these. I am buying these socks for a particular reason and thats for my archaeological dig ill be attending for my college program and they fit perfect in my hiking boots (keen brand) with the tops of the socks hitting perfectly at the top of the boot. They are comfortable and not too hot either which is key. They are an investment for sure , but worth it for my case. Ill be in hiking boots and on my feet from 4am to 9pm monday-friday so im sure these will be great. I just hope they hold up so i can take them home and continue to wear them.
These are some of my favorite socks by SmartWool. I have wider ankles/calves, and these don't dig in. Size medium fits my 9-9.5 women's wide foot well. I use these often for offshore fishing with waterproof boots.
Smartwool makes the best socks by far. The wool is so fine and comfortable. I don't put mine in the dryer. I wash them on warm (perma-press) and hang them up to dry. I have owned smart wool socks for years!!! They are well worth the extra money, because they really hold their shape and last.
Love smart wool socks! The way these socks are made is to hug your foot almost like a support sock does. The sock really conforms to your foot contours. That way you get no blisters while hiking or wearing for long hours. Order your true size for that reason.
perfect for summer walking in walking shoes. comfortable padding round foot.
Tolle Socken, besonders für mehrtägige Wanderungen. Die Geruchsbildung bleibt lange aus und kann sonst durch auslüften beseitigt werden.
Ich habe bereits 2 Paar Strümpfe der Marke Smartwool. Kann ich nur weiterempfehlen, kein schwitzen und keinen unangenehmen Geruch, auch nicht nach 2x tragen ;-)
Hatte die Socken für die Safarireise in Kenia gekauft und nicht bereut. Bequem, nicht zu warm, selbst bei 30 Grad, nicht zu kalt. Die Füße schwitzen nicht und man bekommt keine Blasen.
